Software underpinning carbon removal market.
Sylvera is scaling carbon markets with software, by developing tools to quantify stocks of carbon stored in vegetation using AI applied to satellite or drone data.
Using current quantification techniques, it is impossible to provide accurate and regular data on the performance of forestry projects, which leads to issues with corruption, fraud and uncertainty. This leads to significant financial and reputational risk for corporates purchasing offsets and makes it hard for high quality forest projects to secure fair prices and low cost finance at large scale.
By providing a quantitative sequestration audit trail and associated risk ratings, Sylvera intends to underpin effective voluntary carbon markets. This will allow the market to scale to keep the planet under 2C of warming, and unlock huge co benefits for nature and society.
